The duvet story begins a few centuries ago with down comforters in Europe and silk comforters in Asia. Both comforters required a significant amount of time to make. which gave them value. Also. both types are excellent insulators. but neither one was happy being washed in the local stream nor are they happy in a modern washer.
When you purchase a high quality down or silk comforter to use as your duvet insert. the product will last for many years. and each of those years can realize a utility savings associated with a lower thermostat setting. Duvet covers can be used to give new life to your old decorative comforters. blankets and quilts.
In my household. it has always been a common practice to use a set of sheets. along with blankets and a comforter. One of the reasons that we do this is that the sheets are the only thing to come into contact with our bodies and so they are the only part of the bedding that becomes soiled and the sheets can be taken off on a regular basis and washed. Most commonly people do this on a weekly basis. but there are some who do this on a daily basis and others that stretch the timeline out even further than a week.
So what about when you are using a duvet? Well. that is where duvet covers come in. Essentially. a duvet cover would take the place of a set of sheets. because the duvet cover can be taken off the and washed as you would a set of sheets. It certainly seems that this would simplify the bed making process. since you would be replacing your top sheet. blanket and comforter with a simple duvet. You need only throw the duvet over the bottom sheet and you are done. Or. if you go the old fashioned way. you would have a duvet on the bottom and a duvet on the top. kind of like a sleeping bag with no zippers.
